Okay, I've been working with plasticine for years. I can create cartoon characters that are almost identical to their counterparts (just in a 3D format). However, to animate them... they don't move…Continue
"I don't think there is a better clay type material than plasticine, if you want to do clay animation. Some of us prefer to use other types of materials like foam latex that can bend and be animated, but don't have the ability to be…"
"To stop-motion in general... I wouldn't say I'm a newbie so as much as an amateur.
I've made personal videos I haven't shared because I don't care to (they have no story, they are there just to see how things move &…"
"Even though you're experienced sculptor, are you a newbie to stop motion??? So much stuff to know about and would take bible size book contents about stop motion. In general, you definitely have an internal armature to support the…"
"Wires can just cut right through the clay - you need to make armatures. Put something around the wire to make it thicker - you can pack epoxy putty around them to make bones or wrap them with many windings of paper taped or glued on. For large areas…"
Okay, I've been working with plasticine for years. I can create cartoon characters that are almost identical to their counterparts (just in a 3D format). However, to animate them... they don't move too well because as you move plasticine, it either is too heavy (with large characters), or too thin & they fall over (if you have skinny legs).I've tried some work arounds by sticking some wires in them, but some are either too thin or too thick, and it really makes it a pain in the ass to make…See More
"I love it. Granted, I only saw a couple videos here because I'm new to this site... but this is really great. The animation is smooth, sets are wonderful, lighting is great... looks professional. The character design looks scary because of the…"

Hi, I'm really new to stop motion and have been trying out various frame rates but am mostly sticking to 24p for no particular reason. after my first couple of attempts I switched to shooting in/on twos (1photo for 2 frames) as I have read that a…Continue
I have been doing a lot of research on different tie down methods but I am still confused about what kind of material is best for the floor of the set for a simple drill hole in floor and rod and bolt tie down puppet support. I have seen…Continue
Hi, I haven't been on here for ages and can't find my old thread, so I've started a new one. Here is my finished stop motion segment as part of the completed film. scene at 1:50 I had planned on shooting a couple more scenes, but ran out of…Continue
I've been reading a lot of threads in a lot of forums, and I'm still flabbergasted about how complicated this topic is to fully understand. I'm hoping someone with experience can help clarify the "digital lense flicker" epidemic for me. I'm looking…Continue
